Okay so, first off, I KNOW that I have like zero reason to feel guilty as a mother, BUT, every time I do anything for just myself, I feel terrrrible and dont even enjoy myself. Yesterday was probably the second or third time i've ever gone out with a friend and left my daughter with my mom, I just felt like crap the whole time, and sooo anxious. My mom does'nt help either, she always makes it seem like it's a "chore" to watch my daughter for me. Anyways, DD can be sitting playing with her toys having the time of her life, and I feel guilty for just checking my email, or having a snack, or doing anything besides giving her 100% of my attention. I always think about how I wish I could get out more and get more breaks from being a mommy, but then whenever I do, I cant even enjoy myself because i'm overwhelmed with guilt.
Am I the only one, and how in the WORLD do you get yourself to stop feeling guilty for every tiny thing!?
